This album is a collection of instrumental electronic music which proved to be a stepping stone in creating i am jen's first release "The Broken EP." It's a glimpse into the pre-vocal days when daily routines included methodically connecting inputs to outputs and back again, synth to synth to pedal to computer, creating a reticulum of audio neurons.
Many of these pieces have been used as atmospheric underscore for shows on FOX, HBO, MTV, A&E and The Discovery Channel. The mood-setting muscles in these tracks inject inspiration to even the most primitive neocortices.

i am jen is Jen Scaturro, New York's electronic-pop superhero. Known for her future-modern synth & beat programming, eclectic songwriting and multi-instrumentalist antics, Jen has stepped out of the studio to reveal her true identity...
"i am jen is a cross between Massive Attack and sometimes the glitchier bits of Aphex Twin,...she is similar to Suzanne Vega as well - this is true, especially vocally. I would throw in a bit of early Bjork too." (Robert Pisani @ AlternativeMalta.com)
"i am jen's scientific blend of pop-tronic music is introspective, like an emotional computer. With a stylistic mix of clever vocal processing, hooky synth lines and electronic beats, Jen has grabbed the attention of BBC radio, national music publications and fans across the globe.
The Broken EP, a self-produced, four song introduction to i am jen, has been embraced with international exposure. Radio 1 added "At the Same Time" to the playlist. XM and other stations soon followed in the U.S., Europe and across the web. MTV, FOX & HBO have licensed songs for their television shows (The OC Season 4) and features in Keyboard, Computer Music and Future Music magazine hit newsstands.
Synths, bass, guitar, drum machines, melodica, stylophone, (you name it)...Jen was playing piano before she could walk. She toured the west coast in jazz and pop bands, recorded a 45, and build a recording studio in her bedroom by age 15.
2 colleges, 3 cities, 4 bands and 7 apartments later jen filled her New York city studio with solitude and fed her computer everything that made sound. Her electro-pop stylings caught the ears of major label stars. Programming beats and synth lines on albums progressed to producing songs for records, film & TV.
"Jen's solo electrnoic work is thoughtful, provoking, emotional and scientific, whispering tales of imaginary inner worlds. She combines music with art, pictures and various forms o media to provide a more complete picture of the artist behind the stage." (in_2_it @ crater Technology Magazine)
